Margot and Adam come back from their interesting vacation from Oregon. However, as per Adam’s request, they are keeping their engagement a secret. After Bently reaches out to Margot to figure out some information about his past. Now tensions are high, not only due to the secret she is keeping from her friends, but also digging into her friend’s past.
This wasn’t my favourite book, I felt like most of the book was Margot trying to convince Adam of her theory. Margot, in the end, is correct, but Adam simply gets mad because she goes off on her own to investigate the murder and mystery. Since he didn’t believe her, I don’t know what else he wanted her to do.
Though I didn’t really like the mystery of the book, the storyline is actually quite interesting. Bentley becomes deeper as a character and is fleshed out even more in this book. The interesting concept that he is the father of a criminal is quite interesting. We also get to see Margot finally snap a little at Adam and tell him how she feels about keeping the secret from her friends. Being in a relationship is not as perfect as this genre of books makes it out to be, so it was nice to add in that realism. Talking about perfect romance, Dex and Julia are becoming just a cute couple and they work really well together.
It was an ok book, however, I hope the next book in this series is even better.
